Nursing Under Unsustainable Pressure: Staffing for Safe and Effective Care

Published: 06/06/2022
Last updated: 31/05/2022
Publication code: 010 270

In March 2022, we invited nursing and midwifery staff from across the UK to tell us about their experiences of the last time they were at work. This survey report provides valuable insight into the realities of staffing levels across the UK, and the impact on our members and the people they are caring for.

Some of our publications are also available in hard copy, but this may entail a small charge. For more information and to order a hard copy please call 0345 772 6100 and select option five. The line is open Monday-Friday (excluding bank holidays) between 10am-4pm.

You can download all electronic publications from the RCN free of charge.
